Last PoemsBook - 2016
The Darkening Trapeze collects the last poems by Larry Levis, written during the extraordinary blaze of his final years when his poetry expanded into the ambitious operatic masterpieces he is known for. Edited and with an afterword by Shakespeare Library award winner David St. John and published 20 years after Levis' death, this collection contains major unpublished works. These include final elegies, brief lyrics and a coda believed to be the last poem Levis wrote ever.
